I enjoyed this episode very, very much. Quick pace, funny moments, touching moments.
I don't know when it happened, because I haven't been watching closely, but she's Izzie now.
Ah, I thought the same thing when she did her speech with the survivors. How ironic. Callie nevertheless has something that I've never seen in Izzie, she's self-deprecating. So I still like her.
I do love Alex and Jo. I, too, think that C.Luddington has grown comfortable in her role and she and J.Chambers have grown comfortable playing each other.
For the second time in a row, Jo did something for Alex. Even as insignificant as offering stolen donuts. She makes him laugh. She supports him, and more important, she thinks of him and includes him (when he was so often the fifth wheel). I know that, like every other relationship on this show, this one will certainly be ruined. But for now, I enjoy it a lot. And I grow to like Jo as a character. And she's right: Alex ruled in this episode (and voiceover! yeah!).
I really appreciated the scenes with the interns and residents cooperating to save that kid,and Derek helping and covering for them. Nice team work, everybody had his/her moment to shine (even as comic relief). April is improving...Her new guy seems fine (and for once Stephanie was competitive without getting on my nerves) but I'd like to see an emotionally grown-up April and Jackson try again, along the way. I hope that at least, April calling Jackson first about the child is a first step for them to be friends again.
Now, bitching time. Can Cahill be gone yesterday? I know that I'm going to be served that she has a heart of gold, and it's so not going to work with me.
And two seconds of Bailey, but what seconds. "You've done enough", WTF! Done enough what? Lose a sister, a leg, a best friend, a father of their child, almost their life ? That was more than uncalled for, that was indecent. She was always harsh and not always fair, but kick-ass and likeable (or at least, you saw where she came from). Where's that Bailey? Because I want this new one to move away with her husband.
